Supreme Court agrees to hear case over same-sex wedding cake

The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear a case challenging whether a Colorado cake shop has to make a wedding cake for a gay couple.

The justices in the case — known as Masterpiece Cakeshop Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights — are being asked whether shop owner Jack Philips has to make a cake for Charlie Craig and David Mulliuns' same-sex marriage under Colorado's public accommodations law.

Phillips claims that requiring him to provide the wedding cake violates his constitutional rights to freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion.
